This fly is a variation of the Simran bonefish fly. In the Fall and Early Summer the shrimp in the creeks and on the flats are small. This fly is designed to imitate them. Tied on a size four hook with light eyes, it is easy to cast but sinks quickly. The EP fibers and rabbit strip wave enticeingly in the water even without movement. It has enough flash to attract the reds and trout in slightly stained water. I had a red attack this fly so savagely that he gave me rope burn on my line finger. I haven’t tried it in black yet, but that should work in murky water. It is easy to tie and extremely effective.
